The Powder Tower or Powder Gate is a Gothic tower in Prague, Czech Republic. It is one of the original city gates, dating back to the 11th century. It is one of the symbols of Prague, leading into the Old Town.  It is located in  náměstí Republiky 5, just around the corner from the Municipal House. It was used to store gunpowder.  Wikipedia

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I suspect you’d enjoy cycling in the Czech Republic, the towns are quite picturesque. I loved the guard! So colourful next to the rather dark spooky tower.

      1. It’s funny Jude because my husband was just checking out a cycling tour in the Czech Republic. It does look amazing. So many places to cycle. 🙂
